Industry Association negotiates increased grants for UK exporters
The Shop and Display Equipment Association has revealed that through its negotiations with UK Trade & Investment it has been able to guarantee increased grants for UK companies considering exhibiting at EuroShop 2014 in DÃ¼sseldorf.
Grants worth £35,000 will now be available to SMEs taking on the Government’s challenge to double exports by 2020.
sdea Director, Lawrence Cutler, commented: "It is generally accepted that the UK is the destination of choice for the world’s leading retail brands. That didn’t happen without the support of an established industry of world class retail display designers, manufacturers and suppliers whose mission is to create the inspiring retail environments for which we are well known. EuroShop gives us an ideal platform to show off that talent and the help from UKTI makes it achievable."
Details of the grants and how to apply for them are available from sdea, which is administering the scheme on behalf of UK Trade & Investment.
